Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming (楊俊敏博士) started his Kung Fu training at the age of fifteen under the Shaolin White Crane (Bai He) Master Cheng, Gin Gsao (曾金灶). In thirteen years of study (1961-1974) under Master Cheng, Dr. Yang became an expert in the White Crane style of Chinese martial arts, which includes both the use of bare hands and of various weapons such as saber, staff, spear, trident, two short rods, and many others. Dr. Yang also studied traditional Shaolin Long Fist Kung Fu with Master Li, Mao-Ching (李茂 清), himself a student of legendary Han, Ching-Tang, at the Tamkang College Guoshu Club (1964-1968) where Dr. Yang was studying Physics. Dr. Yang's Taijiquan lineage can be traced back to the Yang family through Master Kao, Tao (高濤) and his teacher Yue, Huanzhi (樂奐之), an indoor disciple of Yang, Chengfu (楊澄甫).
